Here is the thirty part of my video with Yvonne Phillip. In this video we will be talking about tops and jackets. She will explain the body shape and why few things could work and others No, according with the body shape.
Yvonne Phillip is a Personal Stylist and her social media is YvonnePhillipLifestyle on IG / Facebook and Yvonne Phillip on Twitter,
As I said I really hope we can help you and if you are not a wheelchair user send the video to someone you think will benefit from it and we can be all more elegant around the world 🙂
I tried to make the video fun and succinct. Let’s rock guys.
Let’s face it, we all want to live life absorbed in confidence and happiness. Now, whether you want to admit it or not, a large factor in that is your appearance. The way people perceive us, and more importantly, the way we perceive ourselves, is essential in feeling confident, empowered and beautiful.
Luckily, in today’s advanced world, there are plenty of methods to enhance your natural beauty, and a great place to start is your skin. Why? Because healthy skin can transform you into a totally different person.
But, I’ve found that as you reach 40, it’s very difficult to find skin products that are both nice to use and will have a noticeable impact. So, when an amazing company called Esthederm sent me a hyaluronic mask and a mist water product, I was obviously quite sceptical in regard to the effect they could have on my skin.
After using them, though, I can’t speak highly enough of them. The hyaluronic mask is extremely smooth on your face, and it leaves your skin feeling soft, revitalised and glowing. It works by boosting collagen synthesis and retaining skin moisture to prevent against skin aging.
The mist water performs in a slightly different way; by applying the mist water on your face, you’ll prepare your skin to absorb all the ingredients of other moisturises much better than it normally would.
Ultimately, it’s all about keeping your skin hydrated. Personally, I tend to use the products at night and the results have been exceptional. Just looking in the mirror puts a smile on my face, simply because the Esthederm products have enhanced my skin massively. Moreover, I love the fact that the brand prides themselves on being cruelty free.
Nowadays, it’s very easy for skincare brands to manufacture products that are the same as everything else on the market. That’s why it’s incredible that they’ve added a unique element to their products by going down the cruelty free route. Oh, and of course, their products are second-to-none which is the most important thing.
If you’re struggling to take care of your skin, or you just want to give your appearance a boost, then I’d most definitely recommend checking out Esthederm. To make life easy for you, I’ve listed their Instagram account and their website below…

I have been approaching this subject for a long time now. We all have a kind of responsibility of why things don’t change. I normally talk about matters related to fashion, but why are places not accessible, why is the work place not prepared, why are we ok with this exclusion, why don’t we say it is not ok?
Ok, maybe you are one of a small percentage of the population that is doing something about it, but really, most people and organisations seem not too interested. What are you doing to make a more inclusive world? What are your friends doing about it? When do you expect to see a change if everyone is conforming to the status quo?
I am thinking about these questions and realising most people want a change but they don’t want to work at it. I have this proposal for you and I hope you adopt it and I hope you pass the idea around.
The industry will move in direction that money will say. In other words money will set the direction. It means buyers and customers have the power.
Let’s think together. If in the world we are 20% of the population (disabled people), we all have to buy clothes and we all have family and friends. We know a lot of brands are doing something around inclusivity nowadays. Let’s associate with them. Let’s help them, they are doing something right and they must be rewarded for the work. Equality is a big deal, its not fair to leave people out of the party as I normally say, it is also discrimination.
If we all get together, with family, friends, carers, partners, etc, we will be a higher percentage of the world, and it has an impact. Don’t you think? Only buy from brands/ designer/ shops/ that include disabled models, curves, gender, colour, anything that has something to do with minorities and with diversity. Like this we will have more visibility, we will have a voice, and people we understand we are here.
I am working with a new designer in England and with brands that are including wheelchair influencers etc. There are plenty of them. I will mention a few of them here:
Peter Twiss, The House of Radha, Gunda, Vinette, London Organic, Fashions Finest,
Contessina London, Delphine the Label, Louise Linderoth, Kantala, Samsonite, Labels are Limitations, Nara Nubia, Femelle, Rua Luja…
Here are only a few of them. Check my Instagram SAMABULLOCK for more, you will see all of the ones I worked with, but is there many more that are working towards it: Primark, Teatum Jones, ASOS, Tommy Hilfiger, River Island… and how you see many mainstream brands are also embracing this idea.
Check, research. We can support them and they will support us. More visibility we get more power we have to change this “invisible” situation we are stuck in.
Brands know the profit in making a more equal world and empowering their customers.
Diversity is fun. We vote with our money. Let’s vote in the right way.
In this first video, we went through different subjects talking about skin colour, body shapes, and an introduction to my wardrobe, etc. So this month of September will be all about learning with Yves what suits or not us and how we can improve our looks
Her social media is YvonnePhillipLifestyle on IG / Facebook and Ivonne Phillip on Twitter, and she will also start a youtube channel very soon so I will let you know when it comes up. In the meantime, if you follow her on Instagram she has 1 program called Super Style Saturday where she gives precious advice.
I really hope we can help you and if you are not a wheelchair user send the video to someone you think will benefit from it and we can be all more elegant around the world 🙂
